What about this person isn’t a lady?’ ‘Well, his penis.’ ‘Her penis, you f—ing bigot!’ ‘What if he rapes me?’ ‘What if she rapes you, you f—ing TERF whore?'”Gervais marks the second comedian in recent months to have a special on Netflix with jokes about trans people, following Dave Chappelle. During his special, Gervais addresses recent reactions to insensitive jokes, referring not to Chappelle, but to Kevin Hart dropping out as Oscars host in 2018 for his own past homophobic tweets.
